Coroner C. B. Sitterson reports
that Walter Lee James, colored, of
Rockfish Township, accidentally
killed himself by shooting with a
12-guage shot gun while hunting
squirrels without a license. The
accident occurred on the bridge
over Rockfish Creek on the road be
tween Wallace and Harrell's Store
at about 2 p.m. Monday, Oct 18.
Three eye witnesses, Wilbert
James, Lewis Junior and Elisha
Scott West, who were with James,
gave the following account of the
accident. As they and Walter Lee
James were crossing the bridge
they heard a car approaching and
James was afraid that the car was
that of an officer. Since he had no
hunting license he hid the gun by
sticking it down beside a piling of
the bridge butt first. Over the top
of the piling had been nailed a
piece of tin. After the car had pass
ed he reached down and caught
the gun barrel and pulled it up.
The hammer caught on the edge
of the tin and the gun fired. The
load entered under the right arm
and ranged upward ti his neck -killing

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22nd, 1948
Today we received some adver
tisements from the so-called "Dlxie
crats". We replied that we need all
the money we can get, but we dan't
believe in. their principles and we
refused to run their advertise
ments. We believe in the Demo
cratic Party. We believe that it has
given to the South more than any
other group. In every distress of
our country the Democratic Party
has come to our rescue. History
has pi oven that tha liberal ideas of
the Party are correct. Of course,- it
makes mistakes, because it is
made up of humans. But we be
lieve that the people of Duplin ad
here to the Party's principles. We
don't think Dewey is worth a
damn and we know .Wallace and
Thurman are not.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, equaled,
if not surpassed Washington, and
Mr. Truman is trying to carry on
his doctrines and doing his best. .
If we folks in the South, and
particularly in ' North Carolina,
want to hold our strength in the
National Government we had bet
ter watch our step. North Carolina j
is coming into its own in national
recognition, and we want to keep'
it so. Let's hue to the line, use our
heads, and pull together for North
